Aaron D. Smith, Ph.D


  • Assistant Professor and Curator
  • Research Interests: My research interests are broadly centered on questions relating to the biodiversity and systematics of beetles (Coleoptera), particularly darkling beetles; including revisionary taxonomy, biogeography, evolutionary ecology, speciation, and the integration of molecular and morphological data in phylogenetic studies. I am also part of a collaboration building the Coleoptera Anatomy Ontology.
